I eventually went with Brookes Adrenaline GTS 13. I tried on the 2000's but they were too narrow in the foot for me. I've only done 5miles in them so far (on the treadmill to try them out) but they seem to be ok.
I've started running in ASICS Gel 2150. These were replaced by a few pairs of ASICS gel 2160's in which I have run very happily and comfortably. I now need a new pair, to wear in before my next marathon in April, and can't find any in my size. I was just going to replace them with ASICS gel 2170's but have read some really bad reviews of them which has put me off. Any advice on replacing them would be much appreciated.
Hi, I'm a regular runner and have done two marathons and a hand full of halfs. On Saturday I ran a half marathon and for the first time suffered from really bad cramp after about mile 8. Before them I was doing great and was on for a PB. At one point I had to physically pull my toes straight as they were virtually touching the ball of foot. I always carry a pack with carb/electrolite drink in and had been drinking it. I tried stretching but had to finish the race running 100mtrs, stretching, massaging walking, running 100mtrs etc. Any thoughts on why this should have happened as I can't think I did anything different from normal other than having run my last 1/2 just two weekends ago.
Hi, I am a keen runner and am trying to encourage a friend to get in to running. I downloaded a beginners training schedule which my friend has been following. She is now able to run for 5 minutes, walk for 1 and is able to repeat this 4-5 times. However, she is complaining that her feet hurt along the bottom of them, kind of like cramp. Apparently is kicks in when she stops running and takes a couple of minutes to go way. Is this normal? I certainly have never experienced it and don't know what to tell her. She has invested in a pair of running shoes but still experiences this pain. Any advice I can give her would be greatly appreciated.
I'm running my second marathon on 3 Oct but have a problem with my ankle. It started after my first marathon at the start of the year but seemed to go away after a period of rest . It's now back. After a long run of 14+ miles the underneath my ankle bone gets very painful and it hurts to put my foot down for a day or two after. I've rested, iced and strapped it up since last Wednesday and it's definitely getting better but does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to it to ensure I can finish the Loch Ness Marathon>
